When you use GoPit with or without supplying a login Id (GoPit My Search account), your Web browser automatically sends information about your IP Address, your browser user agent string (a user agent string is the automatic information sent to us by your browser so we may properly format GoPit.com for your device and browser type), date and time of your visit and any third party Web sites that referred you to GoPit.
When you search, we collect your search queries that are not personally identified to each user. We use this general search query data for our own research to create a list of popular search queries used for search assist and related keywords. If you select any Web sites from your search results, we will collect click tracking data, which is used to identify popular visited third-party Web sites and to help us improve our search engine. All of this information is anonymized data and not personal data. We may also use third-party analytics to collect anonymized data about your usage of our website.
MY SEARCH ACCOUNT (LOGGED IN)

We don’t track or associate between your personal My Search Gopit username to your personally saved searches. If you delete a saved personal search it will be completely deleted from our data base and can not be retrieved because there is no association between your saved searches and your personal My Search account.
